The Caribbean Sea
There is a tropical wave along 70W. The pressure gradient between the Azores high and lower pressure
associated with the tropical wave is supporting moderate to fresh
winds across the eastern half of the basin, with fresh to strong
winds occurring over the south-central waters. Seas range between
5 and 7 ft. Gentle to moderate E to SE winds are over the NW
Caribbean, except in the Gulf of Honduras where winds pulse to
fresh to strong.
The Atlantic high pressure will combine with the
Colombian low to support fresh to strong trades over the south-
central Caribbean through Tue. Pulsing fresh to strong E to SE
winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras at night through Thu
night. A tropical wave along 70W will continue moving west
across the central Caribbean today.
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Tropical Storm Claudette is centered near 35.6N 77.6W at 21/0900
UTC or 60 nm ESE of Raleigh North Carolina moving ENE at 22 kt.
Estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb. Maximum sustained
wind speed is 35 kt with gusts to 45 kt. On the forecast track,
the system will cross into the western Atlantic Ocean this

additional strengthening is possible over the western Atlantic
Ocean today. Claudette is forecast to become a post-tropical
cyclone Tuesday afternoon and dissipate late Tuesday night.
